D. M. CLEWELL.
DECEMBER 12, 1894. Only 13 days till Christmas! Think of it. This is the 32nd Anniversary for our Christmas doings at the " Cheap Store." What changes we all have seen and experienced in these 32 we were about to say long years but it seems a very short time to many of us! Be it short or long, the world wags on. Men come and men go, but Christmas time comes and goes forev er! Why fchouldn't it? This would be a dreary world if anything stopped when we do as we all will, soon er or later. It is wise to enjoy the ever present. Sure ly if there is any time to be more merry, it is at Christ mas time, the one universal day throughout all Christ endom that brings most tender and cherished memories to us all. But this is a slight digression. Still it is fitting the approaching Christmas time be celebrated to attune all hearts to the sentiment, "Peace on Earth, good will to Man." To 6top moralizing, let us come to the sub ject in hand. To tell you our store is full of good things, is no news. You expect that. We know you will not be disappointed when you vi&it us. We haven't much of anything this time in the way of Fancy " Jim Cracks." We naturally concluded that the demand for the useful things would be more important. Ferfumes Best Goods, Largest Assortment.

Crystal water is first in softness and purity, of the two lakes. The well water is not quite as soft as that of Muzzy, but is pronounced by the chemists to be almost ab solutely pure. Last Wednesday afternoon Miss Florilla Cutler, a maiden lady of somewhat advanced age, who resided with her brother on the Lake Brady road,about two miles from town, was discovered by the latter suspended on a rope attached to a beam in the woodshed. He was just in time to save her life, as she was black in the face and almost strangled to death when he cut her down. That same afternoon Judge Sperra adjudged her insane and on the following Saturday she was taken to the Newburg Asylum by officer Mason. Mrs. Hugus, wife of Dr. H. P.

John, 3:2. " Beloved, now are we the sons or fcroo.' The great question is, what are we ? What is the result of life's experience upon the soul ? Heat that melts iron hardens clay Religion touches daily life. One man sees it as something he can look at, describe, walk round, defend and praise, but there is no religion that does not throb through human life. That religion that is left behind at will is not religion. When you till the farm it is your religion tilling the farm; when you are in the store it is your religion doing busi ness ; when you enter society it is your re ligion in society. Religion disconnected with life ceases to be. It must be wrought with character. 1st. The text suggests a state of Recollec tion, a time when the disciple was not, in the same sense, a son of God. All men are God's children, but all do not enjoy the blessings of sonship. This relationship is the hope of earth. John speaks of a former passage from death unto life. From the sun lit slopes of Christian life, men see the val ley from which they came. Christianity demands a positive change in the life of man. He looks back on a process of change. Self surrender is the gate of life. John sub mits himself to the light of God, revealed by John the Baptist. When Jesus is pointed outtohim he immediately follows the greater light. v Dr. Bushnell, in Chicago, was first an Atheist the rest of the class were all con verted. He believed simply that there was a right, which man ought to follow, and yielded himself to do the right Through this self-surrender, he claims, the light of God came to his soul. Submission to the truth, as far as seen, is the first great principle in the life of John. Sacrifice was the next great principle that entered his life. His writings picture Jesus as the Lamb of God, enthroned by sacrifice. This principle is central in the Christian faith, and the most potent force in the Christ ian life. The other factor in his changed life was Spiritual Power. He teaches as no other, the Spirit's influence over human life. He who yields himself to the truth of God, and lives like Christ, by the law of sacrifice, will possess this spiritual power, and his life became a force in the Master's kingdom. 2nd. The text implies a state of assurance. No doubt of sonship clouds his mind. A caution is here needed. You cannot press all men into the same spiritual mould ; con stitution, bodily ill may dim the vision. The poet Cowper was a Christian, yet for years enjoyed no Christian light. The pious Pay son was often in despair. With this caution in mind consider the assurance of Sonship. How shall the God of paternal love be made real ? John felt the touch of Jesus Christ, and saw in Him the Father's love. By the incarnation, men feel the divine heart throb. Faithful Bible study, earnest prayer, self- sacrificing service for humanity, make God real. The evidence of sonship is in a fruit ful lif e,in the Spirit's witness, and in brother ly affection. ' We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren." 3rd. The text suggests a state of blessing. A father's trial and sacrifice for his children is but a faint picture of God. Not life's toil is crushing to man, but life's wrong. Your Heavenly Father knows your need. Use the means he gives you, and trust your life to Him. Worry .has no place in the Christian faith. There is a protecting ministry ; no ill befalls God's children that is not necessary for iherf spiritual fruitfulness. The aim of God's guidance is the usefulness of His chil dren. This is the blessed state. 4th. The text suggests a state of Anticipa tion. Back of sonship is the Father's bound less love. In sonship is unity with divine nature; it must develop in the likeness of God. This state implies expectancy. " It doth not yet appear what we shall be." Life here is a fragment only. Knowledge is in complete,, character unsatisfactory. The pledge of life in sonship must reach beyond the vale. The crown of our anticipations is oneness with the perfect life. It was enough for John to say, "We shall be like Him, for we shall see Him, as He is." Present dis cord will pass away. Human selfishness will cease. Earthly limitations will be no more, for life wiU be complete in Jesus Christ. MRS- A. H. PARSONS, No. 3 Opera Block. Dorcas Society.

I carry a large stock of goods that would be appropriate for that purpose. Sudden Eclipse of the Honeymoon. Julian R. Humelbaugh, the young man who married miss Irene Moore ol this place, last week, came to sudden grief at Alliance, last Friday, while absent with his bride on their wedding tour. Humelbaugh had rais ed $eo on a checK which he presented at the South Cleveland Banking Company, and which W. It. Dunbar, cashier, subsequently found to be worthless. Humelbaugh had been laentmea at tne rianK Dy tev. li;. j. Lausrhiin. formerly of this place, now loca ted in Newburg. It was for this that he was arrested in Alliance. He says he will have no difficulty in freeing himself from the charge prefered against him. But after he was placed in a ceil at tne vjentrai jr once Station in Cteveland, and while waiting for some philanthropist to bail him out. two ad ditional charges of forgery were prefered against mm. it is claimed tnat tne amount of commercial paper already forged by him aggregates $232. Phillip Levison, of Cleve land, swore out a warrant, charging him with Having used tne name or a. 1 . smitn on. a check for $17, Nov. 26th. Soon after this. Thomas Brett, a piano dealer at No. 43 The Arcade, made complaint against the young man, charging him with swindling mm out, oi $iuu. While in the Alliance jail, where he was placed Friday, pending the arrival of the Cleveland officials, he attempted to escape that same evening, by sawing the bars from his cell, with a saw wmcn ms Driae naa Dor- rowed from a jewelry store in that city, on a false pretence. Only the breaking of the saw Dreventea mm getting away. The Cleveland Press says: "He claimed in Alliance that he was employed by Alex ander Hadden as collector and a detective. He said that a year ago one of his chums forged the name of W. O. Drake to a check. He also forged Humelbaugh s endorsement, but the latter promised to pay the money. Payment was demanded a week ago, and Humelbaugh, being short of funds, went to his chum tor money. Me got anotiier lorgett check and passed it at the South Cleveland Bank."
